shows some of the victims. we can't confirm. but russia, the syrian government's ally and main weapons provider, is backing the regime's claim. syrian rebel spokesman accuse the government of using the weapon, saying this is all part of president assad's propaganda effort to mislead public opinion. the white house says it has no evidence on either side that anyone used any chemical agent. we'll have more on the administration's reaction in a moment. >> first, let's get to jonathan hunt. impossible to know if this is true. but we can look at this video and draw at least some preliminary, well, conclusions. >> we can't be certain about anything, but if you look at the video that is allegedly from this attack, and shows the victims, there's nothing here that would indicate, for instance, gas, the twitching of the victims, vomiting, drooling, mustard good, you would see blistering on the skin. we don't see any of those things in this video, and also we have not yet heard anywhere in the past fewer months or past couple years, any evidence that the rebels themselves have got their hands on
, 30 employees of the united states government you have been sequestered from public view for six months, four of them injured. what is your reaction? >> where they bury the survivors? lou: it has really been just exactly that. >> and the liberace, tucker, i don't think and stole the election. and now our soldiers are getting killed as a result of what he says. after ten years of sacrifice. >> aren't you glad obama pull the troops also the good afghanistan right? >> by the way, what happens to the mass of weapons of mass destruction jack next week is the ten year anniversary. we're still looking for those. lou: it makes you wonder about just where we are with their policy. you will leave about $35 billion worth of material and equipment in afghanistan. at least that appears to be the plan right now. you get the last word here. >> i hope that the prime minister netanyahu on tuesday or wednesday brings out his little round bomb with the red line on it and says, see, i told you so. lou: and not quite sure what that meant, but i will give you the last word. james, joyous, thank you so
governors in jail, it's one of the most corrupt governments not just in the country -- time magazine rated the most corrupt goth -- governments in the world. number one was venezuela, number two was north korea, number three was illinois. [laughter] now, illinois' really bad, but if i take a drive about an hour and a half north on i-94, i start to get a smile on my face, and i pass into the dairy state. [cheers and applause] i get a smile because i know i'm in a state that has a leader. a state that has a leader that stood up to special interests, that looked the unions in the eye and made reforms that were not really popular at the time but are now proven effective. conservatives across the country could look to the governor of wisconsin as a model that you could be courageous, be called out, go to a recall and win with more votes than you did the last time. [cheers and applause] as a student, we need more leaders like scott walker. and as conservatives, we need to promote people like scott walker to run for office and encourage them to continue. ladies and gentlemen, i am honored to intr
investments for the future of our nation and its citizens. americans are tired of watching their government lurch from one crisis to the next. the congressional black caucus offers a sincere credible path towards a long-term solution which creates jobs, expands the middle class, honors our commitment to seniors by preserving medicare and protecting medicaid and addresses our budgetary deficits and debt responsibly. these goals are achievable. but be clear, the ryan budget will not get us there. it is not the path to the nation's collective prosperity. it does not move us forward. democrats and members of the congressional black caucus propose that we move america forward. i thank you for the opportunity to address these important issues. and i yield back. mr. horsford: thank you, congresswoman beatty. we appreciate your leadership and hard work. can i confirm on our remaining time please? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman has 11 minutes remaining. mr. horsford: for the remaining time, i would like to turn to two of our members on the budget committee, people who have heard firsthand ab
in the world, but we will make sure there is a record contrast to the government. across theevealed professions, would the prime minister agree that now is the time to look into nursing and whether we should get back to the patient's bedside? >> i think the right hon. gentleman makes an important point. i do not think we want to see de profession was asian. we have seen huge improvements, but i think we have to get back to making sure the patient care is at the heart of nursing. you cannot be a good nurse without those things, and i think we need to return to those values. >> i do not expect you to go into full details. >> when we must get out of this side chamber of using the word you. you refers to the chair. >> i do not expect the prime minister to know the full details against the background, does he think is fair with a 1% increase while they have been at 5%? >> but as a matter of house authorities. the point i would make is public frozen of 1%,have and we do think that is fair. the extraordinary position is a support at 1% increase for public-sector workers, but they think people on where
that it remains, quote, quite concerned that assad's government will resort to nonconventional weapons. that doesn't tell us whether they have today, but they remain quite concerned that the government will. now, james just mentioned, it was just last august that president obama issued a warning, and as i mentioned, about chemical weapons in syria. no matter which side used them, here is some of that. >> we cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hand of the wrong people, and we have been very clear to the assad regime, but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is-- we start seeing a whole bunch of chemicals weapons being moved around or utilized. that would change my calculus. >> megyn: coming up later this hour, colonel oliver north with the breaks news and what the united states of america might do, might have to do in the wake of the statements by president obama, if the chemical weapons claims prove true. we've got more breaking news this time from the investigation into the deaths of seven marines during a training exercise in ne

. there are issues relating to the ,oss of proprietary information if they share it with the federal government. we're working through those. there is legislation pending to address this. if we are to be successful in this realm, we have to develop mechanisms telling information between the private sector and the federal enclave in order to anticipate and prevent cyber attack and then identify those responsible for the attacks and to make certain that they go to jail or otherwise. >> thank you. and thank you mr. chairman. there are questions about what can be done now and what can be done if we have the legislation theif we don't have information in the legislation, are we preventing you from the partnerships with the private sector. but we will save that for another day. thank you very much. [inaudible] i've heard there's a growing concern about gangs pin the u.s. military. does d.o.t. participate in this gang intelligence center in and do they have access to the data as a tool to prevent gang recruited in the military? >> i would have to check as to what is their commitment of personnel assigned
get it. there is new government job out there one agency is creating. pays six figures a year. might check it out despite the punishing budge jubt cuts we're hearing about. bill: benghazi six months later. the six simple questions one lawmaker that the believes the administration is dodging. >> the fact we have four dead americans. was it a protest or guys out for a walk decided they would go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? usual breakfast sandwich. a lot more flavor. [ anouncer ] ihop's new griddle melts... made fresh and hot! hand crafted just for you. it's like a sexy sandwich.

republican budget does, mr. president, it's focused on growing the economy, not growing the government. what the democrat budget here before the senate this evening does is it grows the government, not the economy. in fact, if you look at what the analysis that's been done, it's expected that the democrat budget would cost us 850,000 and reduce take-home pay for middle-class families by $1,500. the house republican budget takes serious the challenges facing this country, takes the steps that are necessary to save and protect medicare for future generations of americans, something that this budget, the senate democrat budget, does not do. i urge my colleagues to support this budget. it's a serious one that balances the budget in 10 years and puts our economy back in a growing mode and our fiscal house back in order. i yield the floor. omrs. murray budget raise: yawz. the presiding officer: is there a sufficient second? there appears to be. the clerk will call the roll. vote: the presiding officer: are there any senators in the chamber who wish to vote or to change a vote? if not, on this vote
country. the government claims rebel groups use the weapons in an attempt that reportedly killed more than two dozen people. the rebels deny it. they claim it was, in fact, the regime that launched the attack. but after more than two years of each side leveling accusations of murder and torture and increasingly desperate employees for support for world powers. it's impossible to know who to believe. the regime claims the chemical attack happened outside of aleppo. syrian state media showed this video and reports it shows so. wounded. the people here do not bear any signs of any chemical warfare. no visible blisters or convulsions, discolored scand so forth. today the white house cast doubt on that government claim. the white house issued a stern warning nevertheless. >> the issue of the possibility of chemical weapons remains a great concern. you heard the president from this podium express his position when he said, quote: the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and his warning to the syrian regime that, quote: there will be consequences and you will be held acc
they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the government's budget. if we continue on our current path, the medicare trust fund will be insolvent by 2024. and medicare and medicaid will grow from 24% of the federal budget to almost 30%, crowding out other needed investments. we have to reduce health care costs in both the private sector and public sector in order to ensure america remains competitive in a global market, but there is a right way to reform our health care system and there is a wrong way. with all due respect, mr. ryan's path is the wrong way. mr. ryan's plan for medicare and medicaid misses the point. his solution simply shifts the costs from government to patients rather than reducing health care costs. under the ryan budget, seniors would pay as much as $1,200 more each year by 2030 and $6,000 more by 2050. for over half of medicare beneficiaries with incomes less than $21,000, a $1,200 increase is a huge piece of their budget. he also proposes block granting medicaid, which would cut medicaid funding by approximately $700 billion over the next decade and
taxes taken out of the pockets of hardworking american families, more government spending which adds to the trillions of dollars in debt that will be handed down to the next generation. our friends on the other side of the aisle talk about a balanced approach, but they refuse to even balance their own budget. our vision calls for a stop to washington's failed policies and reckless spending. it says american families and small businesses understand you can't spend more than you take in. you need to balance your budget, and it's time for washington to do the same. this vision seeks to protect the things that we value most, to keep the promises we made to our seniors, to our veterans. i'm the son of a u.s. marine. while at the same time allowing us to leave a better future for our kids and our grandkids, that's the vision i want to work toward and that's why i'm proud to support the house budget committee's proposal which we'll be voting on later this week. this isn't about passing a budget for one year, just one time. this is about creating lasting solutions that help grow our economy
, to the prestige and credibility of the u.s. government are daunting and dismaying if we found the wmd it would have been different. it totally would have been different but we didn't. >> sure. right. >> so are the american people more likely to question the challenge of this country being capable and on a proper premise to go into war? >> absolutely. i mean, those poll numbers that you cited way back when, ten years ago, were reflective of what the american people were told by its government, by its president, its secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. and so i think going forward, particularly with the saber rattling with iran and what's being talked about with north korea and its belligerence, the american people are going to be very cautious. i should say m
. there are issues relating to the loss of the proprietary information, if they share it with the federal government. we are working through those but if we are to be successful in this realm, we have to develop mechanisms of channeling information between the thought -- between the private sector and federal enclave to participate and the bedside attacks and identify those responsible for those attacks and to make certain they are deterred from the additional attacks. >> thank you. it seems it is a question what can be done now and if this are you really from a good relationship with the private sector? thank you bear much. >> i have heard this is a growing concern about gangs in the u.s. military. does the dod participate in the national gang intelligence center? >> i would have to check to the the personnel assigned. i do know that we were work -- we work cooperatively with the military to address things that may be on the feet and also in the military. particularly in cases where there is indication the gang activity is not mullah gated to just the community -- is not relegated just to the commu
, let's get to governing, what we do is go in for the kill. because in a knife fight between a liberal and a conservative a conservative will stab ya and then they'll step on the wound, and break your neck and then put you in the trunk next to the other bodies -- >> hal: and a liberal will say here is my knife. >> right. >> hal: on that note we will let you go. karl frisch, karl frisch.com some fantastic stuff. not the least of which is on your sight, karlfrisch.com. you have a -- >> youth in government it changed my life. >> hal: so not only is karl frisch's site great in and of it's a, but also if you got a moment, and -- and you are leaning that way at all, you know, go by there, click on the link and donate. >> and he tends to be super funny. >> i try to be. >> there is no try, karl. there just is. >> hal: thank you yoda jacki. thank you karl frisch for leaving us on a yoda laugh. >> take chair. >> hal: we're going to talk about the president's trip to israel. and the difficult issues of the middle east peace process, dealing with the israeli palestinians and
of the party right now is that it is anti-tax and once big cuts in the size of government. and that has not changed. and through the whole budget wars we've been seeing, the sequester, i think this came up the last time i was here. the economic conservatives, the low tax, small government conservatives have established their supremacy. they have beaten out the national security hawks who didn't want to see cuts to defense. i think this is an example where they're beating the social conservatives who aren't ready for a shift in gay marriage. opposition within the party to gay marriage is substantial and they don't want a more liberalized immigration policy. so the one thing that is still here is low taxes, including on the wealthy, and deep cuts to government. i think that is a fundamental problem for the party. it cause them problems with all kinds of groups. there is only so much you can do when you change the language as long as you hold on to the tax and spending cuts policies. >> you touched on immigration policy. i think lawmakers in washington on the republican side see it as esse
be nonbinding so would act as guidelines for the u.s. government. but at the heart of the debate, how do you reduce the government's massive budget debt, and changes in taxes and spending. today the top democrat and the republican had their say. >> both sighs favor closing took loopholes that favor the wealthiest americans, and the senate thinks shouldsome revenue should be idea to tackle the deficit and invest in the middle class, not just simply cut tax rates for the rich. >> usually you can tax more and spend more and borrow more and that will somehow create growth and prosperity. i believe we have had four years of that experiment, which i fundamentally doubted and opposed from the beginning. and it hasn't worked. >> shepard: regardless of whether it's worked or hasn't, the insiders say the democratic budget will likely pass. mike emanuel is in washington. how has the vote been going and what's it like in there so far? reporter: we expect starting any moment they'll vote on a series of amendments between now and late night tonight. 25 to 40. summon hot-button issues including abortion, s
model, government subsidized haircuts shaves and shine will be a thing of the past and you the taxpayer will no longer foot the bill for the grooming of your senators. the american taxpayers have forked over 5.25 million dollars for, yes, senate hair care. pretty unbelievable, or maybe not. because we do know how important the perfect haircut is well, to certain senators. remember john edwards? remember this? ♪ i feel pretty, oh so pretty ♪ ♪ i feel pretty and witty and bright ♪ ♪ >> oh, what a classic. that's all the time we have left this evening. as always, thank you for being with us. let not your heart be troubled, the news continues. greta is next and see you back here tomorrow night. greta, take it away. >> greta: this is a fox news alert. an 8th marine has died after a mortar shell explosion during a training accident in nevada. several marines were also hurt in the desert warfare training and new outrage over senator harry reid's remarks and is he playing politics with the giant tragedy? >> late last night, seven of our marines were killed and many others were injure
their taxes as well. we're talking about the thousands of government federal employees dodging the i.r.s. should they be fired? we've got an update on that this morning. >>brian: you think a woman's cheating husband would get the message. after she uses a billboard for revenge. but the best part is how she paid for it. look at that. "fox & friends" starts right gnaw. >>steve: welcome to march madness live here on the "fox & friends" set. >>alisyn: good to be with you all. >>steve: the president is out of the country, 50-hour sprint in israel. we have a situation where a lot of you are saying it is so cold here, i can't wait for vacation. we have a great segment in about 20 minutes. we have the founders and c.e.o. of 14 sandals, three beaches. wouldn't they like to see alisoe just as a token. we might have a beaches bureau. >>alisyn: let's do it. i volunteer. let's talk about the middle east. the president is making his first trip to israel since becoming president and there's a lot of tension, including this attack with rockets fired across the border. >>steve: indeed. somewhere in g
to go. they want a yes or a no. charles: we have already scene when you have these giant governments, these welfare mentalities, it will cost the average person. we saw it in california. the bottom for everyone to understand is when you have these giant governments, it will cost everyone. that is a true story. it has already happened here. stuart: up until now, if you lend money to a government or a bank with a bond issue-- now cyprus is introducing something different. everybody pays for the bailout that is the difference here. that is the switch that cyprus brings to us. we are now out of time. the dow is up 14. it is a state of flux. let me give it to you, dagen and connell. dagen: wing all or some of your money, i think most people would choose some. connell: thank you, stuart. good morning, everybody. i am connell mcshane. dagen: i am dagen mcdowell. how you can profit. that is straightahead. connell: bracing for a retirement crisis. will lose share problem is a share problem. we are talking about lulu lemon. that stock is lower and it is all because of some see through yoga pan
for the united states government for fiscal year 2014, and so forth. mr. reid: mr. president? the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: as we just heard, the senate has resumed consideration of the budget debate. s. res. 8, the budget resolution. we'll continue debate during today's session. senators will be notified when votes are scheduled, of course. now, mr. president, the budget has 34 hours left and then following that we're going to have some votes. it's up to the two leaders, the managers of this bill, whether they have votes before the 34 hours expire. now, mr. president, the these are two experienced senators and they can handle this -- they both know how to handle this budget, but it would seem to me that we should move as quickly as we could to debating these issues. i hope senators come and offer their opinions as to the budget that chairman murray has brought to the senate floor. maybe some people want to talk about what passed the house yesterday, the ryan republican budget. but everyone should understand that this time will run out at the latest tomorrow at 7:00
brotherhood government in control and we misread the arab spring and the muslim brotherhood said they wouldn't run someone for president and they did. we've seen hamas stronger as well as hezbollah, islamic jihad. and we've seen incredibly unstable situation in syria. when i was there on a congressional visit and we sat down with president netanyahu, one thing he asked, he was concerned about iran and the dominance and occurred and we have the iranian guard in syria. and their march toward having the nuclear device so they can have dominance. >> sean: that's all true and it's gotten worse, leslie, after the suck up to the world apology tour. and king be abdullah, jordan, says it's naive, that the muslim brotherhood are wolves in sheep's clothing, risky for him. and this president is giving 1.5 billion dollars, and f-16 jets and tanks it a guy that views the israelis as the descendents of apes and pigs. do you think that's a good foreign policy, leslie marshall? >> i don't think it's a good foreign policy to pretty much be-- is that a good policy. >> i'm answering, as to how we establish bord
: meantime the house voted yesterday on a republican budget for next year that would shrink the government by another 4.6 trillion over the next decade. paul ryan says this is the only way to balance america's books. >> their plan this year, they can fire it and go to a new one next year. those plans compete against each other around drives down costs and increases quality. it is a bipartisan idea. we want to apply that idea to the rest of the medicare for the younger generation. what this shows you can make medicare solvent and sustainable. you can make sure you don't change it for current seniors and save it for the next generation with these kinds of reforms. bill: that plan is on the way to the white house. republican budget plan for 2014 calls for a balanced budget in 10 years and sharp cuts for safety net programs for the poor and other programs. >> sharp blow to the president's health care law three years after it was passed republican senator orrin hatch and democratic senator amy klobuchar leading the charge repealing a key medical device tax that helps bankroll the law. stuart va
-- erupting over the euro zone bailout offer. the government of cyprus's central bank saying there should not be changes -- charges, rather, on accounts up to $129,000. they expect 10% of all deposits to be taken out when banks reopen on thursday. a russian energy company is looking to cash in on the gas problem is offering to bail out cyprus in exchange for the rights to explore for natural gas there. >> a stunning new report on mammograms this morning. researchers saying 60% of abnormal mammograms turn out not to be cancer and false positives can lead to unnecessary biopsies or even surgery. this is taking a serious mental toll on some patients. women who received a false positive report anxiety and depression three years after learning they're cancer-free. >>> don't even look at this. one week after mayor bloomberg lost his fight to ban big sodas, now he wants to ban the display of all tobacco products in stores. business owners would have to keep cigarettes under the counter or behind a curtain. this would make new york city the only city in this nation to do so. >> those are your hea

's employees will be gone. where the red assets are going to the bank of cyprus. the government spending cuts will have to come along with tax increases. this deal still hurts. >> i do not think there is any denying that the cyprus people will have to go through tough times and will suffer the consequences. we had to adjust over relatively a short period of time. rich: now the question is what does this mean for the rest of the euro zone? this, the bailout should be a template for the rest of europe and banks should be reduced. back to you. connell: rich edson lives in cyprus. trading halted in some of those italian banking stocks also added the comments in terms of a template. time to bring in axel merck. your thoughts? >> good morning. when someone screams fire, you do not want to shut the accident. halting stocks, i do not think, is helpful at all. i think it is rather responsible. the question is what will happen. obviously, investors are taking action. connell: you just look at the big board here in the united states and the green at the beginning of the day has now turned red. european
of money in lots of areas throughout the federal government and what we have failed to do is to give flexibility to all these agencies to, they know what's important, what's not and we've chosen not to do that. harry reid on the senate floor decided not to allow votes to do that. bill: we'll see whether or not they pick and choose real soon. senator kelly ayotte out of new hampshire has a big voice if this. we'll talk to her about the efforts to cut wasteful spending in programs she says should go. that is coming up shortly. martha: we have brand new fox polls out this morning about budget and taxes. look at numbers. people were asked what bugs you the most when paying your taxes? the list is so long. how could you think about what bothers you most. number one, 43% the way the government spends their money, 43% is what really bugs them the most. 38% goes to one of the president's biggest talking points during the campaign. people say they don't think some folks pay their fair share. goes on from there. the tax forms and amount you pay which is always bothersome. what do you think? bi
. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
. syria's government and acquisition are trading accusations regarding possible crossing of that red line. syria claims the opposition launched a chemical attack leaving 16 dead and dozens more injured. if any one used the weapons it would be president assad's regime. >> no evidence to substantiate the charge that the opposition has used chem kl weapons. we are skeptical of a regime that lost all credibility. we would warn them about using preteches or cover for his use of chemical weapons. >> lindsay graham is calling for american troops on the ground in syria to secure chemical weapons sites. >> the house will vote over paul ryan's chairman plan. the plan will balance our nation's budget within 10 years. he is calling for $4.6 trillion in spending cuts reforming medior future generations and repealing obama care. democratic congressman rejected ryan's plan. his plan calls for $1.2 trillion f of new revenue. >> the statue of liberty will be open july 4th. it has been closed since super storm sandy hit last october. the statue was spared but water 8 feet high devastated around it destroyi
